health care law was not ready for prime tim. the documents we are now reviewing tell a much, much different story than what officials testified to congress. the white house continues to claim healthcare.gov is working better. public sentiment, however, is worsening. a new gallup poll shows the majority of americans, 52 percent, say they want a law scaled back or repealed outright compared with 50% to felt that way in october. 37 percent said they want a law expanded or kept as is. joining us now, senior fellow at the manhattan institute, former health care policy adviser to the romney campaign and also the author of the new book, how medicaid fails the poor. great to have you here. a member teeseven number of visitors, abovehree and a half million people. should we care? what does it tell us? >> we should care because the old plan is that people had have been canceled. if they cannot get insurance under the new system it is a big problem. it is not just a big problem for those individuals, but the viability of the insurance companies that are now trying to sign up people for whom
